Avon Anew contains copper peptides. The only problem is that the effective formula for copper peptides is patented and held by a company called Skin Biology. Its worth trying their copper peptide products. I would definitely buy Boots R&R before buying Anew. Boots has a retin base and using a retinol, say in the morning, and a copper peptide at night is a good combination. I've researched this in detail on my blog Truth in Aging

For me the best anti-wrinkle cream is a high SPF sunscreen. Prevention is golden.

Other than that I have never found a magic skin cream that truly changes my skin...I have found some that smooth out the skin's appearance while they're on your skin but not with lasting results..

One of the Clinique creams actually temporarily will make my skin look smooth. I forget which one...I think it is the Total Turnaround Cream. But when I stop using it? No difference.

Then a couple of years ago my dermatologist recommended that I use sunscreen at home since I use compact fluorecent bulbs. I may have some issues with my skin but wrinkles not at all and I hit the mid century mark last year.
I didn't see this post before I made mine. We think alike. Sorry about your skin growth scare...I know several people who have experienced this and they all say the same thing- "I wish I hadn't tanned for years, I wish I had always worn sunscreen."

I use this (and I'm a man) and I think it worked well. I used the "clear" which gets rid of sun damage and then the whole 8 week treatment (I looked like I'd been skiing without sunblock for a while) and I was impressed. That was a year ago, and I use it twice a week since then for maintenance. I think it was about $300, but lasted for a year. I also had lower eyelid blethroplasty, fat replacement along cheek bones, and upper brow lift. I'm 41 and still get carded.

I swear by the Dr. Denese skin care system which is based on exfoliation. Not specifically her products, which are sold on her home shopping network, but her regimen. Her book is called Dr. Denese's Secrets For Ageless Skin. The exfoliant product I use is Alpha Hydrox and it has 12% AHA. My moisture and cleansing products are all Olay. I feel Regenerist is the best product on the market for the money. Sunscreen is key and I favor products that contain an ingredient called Mexoryl. I wear sunscreen anytime I do not have makeup on, even at home, and stay out of the sun as much as possible.
Last week a 20 year old at work asked me if I am 25. I am actually 37.

There was a study done on the ingredients in Creme de la Mer, and it is identical to a product made by Dove, and only available in Canada for some odd reason. It is called Dove ultra rich night cream or something like that....

Does anyone have any more feedback on the Boots 7 that they were talking about a few months ago on here?

And I second that good sunscreen, not smoking and eating lots of fruits and vegetables will do more for your skin than any of these creams....that said, I do those things and would like a boost!

I have discoloration due to being on accutane last year and am using retina. No more acne, but I do have some evidence left behind. I assume retina is the best, but anyone else have brown spots that they have removed?

I have been using Avon also. It is wonderful. They also have a new product called Magix that you put under your makeup. It is amazing.

I refuse to use any of that chemical crap on my face.

I use Lush for my facial care.

Twice a week, their Brazened Honey bio-fresh face mask, 3 times a week their Ocean Salt facial cleanser, 4 times a week their Babyface facial cleanser, Eau Roma toner spray, and their Almond Kisses moisturizer.

They also make the BEST soaps and bath products, as well as hair care products.

Home - LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics

WELL worth the price, BTW!
